thunder_head1 (79) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2011
Cask at the cross keys pangborne around july. Aroma has hints of fruit and taste is also fairly fruity like it slightly better on cask than bottle cant wait for next year.

3.2
DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2011
The Merchant, Rugby. Burnished orange gold with a low, lacing top. Slight orange and pine aroma. Thick and heady with hay, aniseed, orange and almond notes. Some cream and pine. A pint would be plenty. Decent, old school stuff but too much at lunchtime

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Last Plantaganet Leicester. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. Very little in the aroma. A bit of graininess. Sweetish in the mouth with a touch of toffee and banana. A decent body but as a beer it’s too safe.
